Description of problem:
This happens on an IBM T30 laptop. After boot, gpm starts although i am not able
to use the mouse on the console. I need to manually run "gpm" which gives me the
following message: O0o.oops(): [gpn.c(195)]: gpm is already running as pid
XXXXX. Also even after I do this it doesnt always work when I switch to a vt.
Sometime I need to switch between x and the vt a few times before the mouse works.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core test2 on a T30.
2. Have gpm installed and try to use it.
3. Run "gpm" manually and get the already running message.
4. Now the touchpad/pointing stick works.

Actual Results:  The pointing device worked using gpm although not consistently

Expected Results:  The pointing device should have work from boot "gpm" startup
